I'm a Vale fan since about 2000 when I saw him at Donington,Uk, come from 11th or something at start to win. My opinion is that JORGE is his greatest ever opponent. I think Jorge is SUPER fast and is in his prime now. Vale will do well to beat him this year,hope he can. What a year we've got in store. Let battle commence!!

re: “Anyway, I keep my confidence that we can also make a good result there. I want to win at Austin and that's my mentality although I know in the USA it will be much more complicated.”

translation: thank GOD they scheduled this for round 2..!!! ross and i have already discussed, we should be able to coast around (basically unchallenged) and not DNF. returning to europe havng collected points in P3 and P4 wil be no worse than team orange back in qatar. did i mention, thank god this is only round 2...?

It wasn't Foster for sure. I been drinking the same thing since 1999 and I had too much of it back in 2004. I also had it back in Laguna 2008 and Catalunya 2009.

MCN this week has an article from Neil Spalding, where he says that Yamaha have a new gearbox in their factory bikes to counteract the HRC seamless 'box and their previous advantage out of turns and initial acceleration.

Its on Page 78 if you have access to this publication.

It'll be interesting to see the relative performance in this critical area at COTA - have Yam closed the gap with a better gearbox? And if so, by how much?

The HRC's were ascendant in the test, but that doesn't gurantee that the race weekend will go the same way.

It'll be educational finding out!
